"Supertramp" Cromarty 36
Our reasons for choosing a Cromarty 36 and Supertramp in particular were as follows:
a. As a (retired) husband and wife team moving up from a Rival 32, we wanted a boat that would be suitable for living aboard for 6 months of the year and capable of extended cruising often far from any facilities.
b. We wanted a very reliable sea boat for Biscay and the Atlantic coast of Spain and Portugal and a comfortable boat for the Med.
c. Friends coming back from 5 years in the Med advised 14 features (in no particular order) all of which were answered in full by Supertramp.
We wanted 7 additional features which Supertramp has now got and we found to be invaluable.
Supertramp's specification, as the name "Cromarty" suggests, also makes her ideal for cruising in high Northern latitudes. She has had two owners from new and each has incorporated just about all the extras available to make her comfortable for live-aboard cruising.
All this on top of the standard spec which includes 100 galls diesel giving about 1000 mile range under engine, 100 galls water, twin heads/showers, and most important of all, inside and outside steering positions with all the usual instrumentation including GPS, Radar and Navtex etc, plus a user-friendly galley with double sinks, gimballed cooker and plenty of stowage.
Last but not least, she has 6 berths in 3 cabins, the master cabin aft having en-suite loo/shower. The forward twin berth cabin with its own adjacent loo/shower is ideal for guests.
The sitting out area aft is set up for 6 to eat in comfort. The bimini is a boon in hot or wet weather. The davits and Zodiac dinghy are a great combination.
A distinguishing feature of the Cromarty is that she is an "up" deck saloon giving almost 360 degree views when sitting inside. Windows open on all sides and are made of Yacht Toughened Glass complying with BS857 to withstand the heaviest weather (when the windscreen wiper earns its keep). We have cruised as a couple in Supertramp for 8 years and often had another couple with us (forward). She sleeps 6 but we haven't put that to the test although 6 can dine inside or out very comfortably.
She has been meticulously maintained and has always been wintered ashore. Supertramp's sale is prompted by the arrival of grandchildren.
She was exhibited at the 1989 Southampton Boat Show and was written up in Yachting Monthly and Classic Boat Magazine. The Information Pack with full inventory also includes the editorial articles.
Supertramp of Southampton is offered for sale in excellent condition fitted out and ready to go.
